After earning my Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering and MBA from Arizona State University, I worked at Motorola Government Electronics Group as an electrical engineer developing communication equipment. A career change provided a chance to use my MBA, and in 2010 I joined PK Associates’ Marketing and Business Development department. I enjoy working for a team that is always ready to bring creative, solution focused ideas to the table in order to deliver the best designs possible for each and every client.
I am actively involved in several A/E/C industry organizations including the AZ AIA, AAED, Alliance for Construction Excellence (ACE), CASHE, Valley Partnership, and Phoenix Community Alliance (PCA). Building relationships, developing lasting friendships, and promoting our best-in-class engineering team are the highlights of my day.
It brings me great joy when I can make a difference and help others, and I have enjoyed volunteering for many different organizations over the years. It was very rewarding to chair the Evening Under the Stars Fundraiser for the Mount Claret Retreat Center and serve as the President and Vice President of Mont Carmel Home and School Organization, as well as the Treasurer for SW Gymnastics and AZ Soccer team.
In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and friends, bicycling, watching professional football (Go Arizona Cardinals!), and traveling. I’ve been very fortunate to have traveled to many exciting parts of the world. Cruises have taken me through the Mediterranean Sea, Baltic Sea, Ireland, the Panama Canal, Alaska, and my favorite, the Rhine/Danube River. I have also taken several road trips throughout the nation, two of my favorites have been The Canadian Rockies and New England.
